Welcome to the married life. After spending months and even years of preparation for your wedding day is finally over. The next day when you wake up means that it is day 1 of your life being married. Since this is a special day I have prepared a list of things to do after your wedding day. Here is the list to do after your wedding day:
1. Secure all the gifts. It is expected that after the wedding, gifts will surely occupy space in your home. In some places, couple would prefer to receive money rather than tangibles. If it is money, put it in your account. You will use it in the future. If tangibles, select the things that you would be using in your home and keep those you will be using in the future.
2. Prepare the thank you cards. It would be appropriate to thank those people who witnessed your wedding day. A simple thank you card will be good.
3. Visit your in-laws. Respect to your new family is very important. Visit your in-laws and thank theme for the support that you receive from them.
4. Plan for the next thing. Many are expecting a baby. It is reality of newly weds that people around them are very keen and excited about the baby news. Some couple would prefer to enjoy each others company first. A year of being couple would be ideal for newly weds. Enjoying each others company makes the married life more exciting and fun.
Being married is fun and it is a stage of a person's life that he/she would be encountering more responsibilities in life.

Its been quite awhile since I saw a basketball match on TV. The FIBA 2013 hosted by the Philippines is something worth watching. Tonight's game between the host, Philippines versus Korea was hair raising. I admit I screamed and cheered for my country. I never felt this way since the 1990's championship of Alaska milkmen.
Going back to the basketball game, The Philippines played like there is no tomorrow and beat Korea fair and square. It clearly shows that the country's basketball program is now improving and basketball talents are overflowing. It was a close game and worth watching.
In the first quarter, the Koreans were showing great defense. In the second quarter, the Philippines completely dominated the game, showing team work. The third quarter was still a close match Koreans stayed close. 3 pointers and outside quick shots are trademark of the Koreans. It is a talent that is unmatched by other teams in the FIBA Asia. The fourth quarter was breathless. I cannot count the times when I shouted and leaped. I remembered I was already standing in the dying minutes of the game. Finally it was over and the Philippines defeated Korea in a close one...Nice job guys....I am excited in the World Basketball in Spain....

Its been a week already since my wife was discharge from the hospital after she gave birth to our second baby girl. My wife has already discharge but my little baby has to stay in the nursery room for treatment. It is nothing serious but I don't want to take the risk of not treating her. Our pediatrician advised us that our baby has a high wbc or white blood cells, above the normal range. There are several reasons to it and these are:
- Mother might have Urinary Tract Infection during pregnancy.
- Mother has a pneumonia during pregnancy.
- Mother was seriously ill during pregnancy.
- Long labor in the delivery room.
Yesterday morning , we were already informed that our baby's wbc has already normalize and she will be discharge by Wednesday morning. After 4 days of treatment her wbc is already normal. But since the treatment must be for a week, we decided to complete it for the sake of the baby.
What they say is really true about pregnancy. Every pregnancy is unique from another. There is no pattern that is being followed. This is what I believed to be the wonder of life. I am just happy that she is safe and ready to go home. her sister Reese Arabella is already excited to see her younger sister.
